Fragrant Friday - Carolina Herrera Bad Boy Le Parfum

Carolina Herrera redefines the iconic Bad Boy scent with an electrifying new formula that's bolder than before...
Bad Boy Le Parfum - 50ml - $102, 100ml - $138, 150ml - $180 - with top notes of grapefruit and hemp; heart notes of black pepper and geranium; and base notes of leather and vetiver for a scent that is unapologetic, authentic and mysterious.
I'm a fan of men's fragrance with grapefruit in them so I was already prepared to like it, although I do find that grapefruit tends to fade quickly - but not in this case - the grapefruit lingers while the spicy heart notes gives the fragrance some real kick with the vetiver adding some soothing green notes - overall I am loving this one - and the lightning bolt bottle is just cool!
Available at Hudson's Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sephora and Jean Coutu stores across Canada and online at sephora.ca.

And of course there is a fun commercial to go with it...
